The magnitude of the zero sequence current used for polarizing may be different from that of the ground current seen by the measuring element(s) of the relay. Figure 1-1. Figure 1-2 illustrates relay connections that obtain zero sequence current from a current transformer(s) in the grounded neutral(s) of a three winding transformer. relay operation will be inhibited. Reference quantity is also referred to as polarizing quantity. BE1-67N relays use one of the following quantities for polarization: • • • Zero sequence current Zero sequence voltage Dual zero sequence current and voltage The polarizing quantity is field selectable using a switch mounted on the analog circuit board. Zero sequence quantities provide a secure reference for the directional element because these quantities are defined by the total source impedance of the power system. When the selected polarizing quantities are less than the minimum threshold.SECTION 1 • GENERAL INFORMATION PURPOSE BE1-67N Ground Directional Overcurrent Relays provide ground fault protection for transmission and distribution lines by sensing the flow of ground (zero sequence) current into or out of protected zones. Figure 1-1 illustrates relay connections that obtain zero sequence current (3I0) from a separate current transformer in the grounded neutral of a two winding wye-delta power transformer. A directional overcurrent relay operates by comparing the measured current to a reference quantity to determine whether current is flowing into or out of the protected zone. Zero Sequence Polarizing (Two-Winding Transformer) 9190700990 Rev G BE1-67N General Information 1-1 . the relay will operate if either polarizing quantity is above minimum threshold. APPLICATION BE1-67N Ground Directional Overcurrent Relays are recommended for multi-grounded systems to provide coordination necessary to selectively trip the faulted line. When using dual polarization. Zero Sequence Current Zero sequence current polarization is preferred for applications with low ground source impedance.

Zero Sequence Polarizing (Three-Winding Transformer) Zero Sequence Voltage Zero sequence voltage polarization is preferred for higher ground source impedances. These output contacts are used with optionally selected target indicator circuits. Dual polarization is achieved using a polarizing signal that is the phasor sum of the current and voltage polarizing signals. or to provide redundant polarization.Figure 1-2. This alarm output contact is normally closed. Configuration of these contacts is defined by the relay style number. Dual Zero Sequence Current and Voltage Dual polarization is preferred where ground source impedance varies. Relay Status Alarm A relay status alarm output contact (relay fail) indicates that proper voltages are not being supplied to the internal relay circuitry or that the microprocessor self-diagnostics has detected an error. tripping. Refer to Figures 11 and 1-2 for relay connections that obtain zero sequence voltage (3V0) from a set of grounded wyebroken delta voltage transformers. and auxiliary (optional). A choice of line angles allows the relay to be adjusted to include the resistance component of the ground fault. Tripping Normally open or normally closed tripping contacts are included for each function within the relay. OUTPUT CONTACTS BE1-67N relays have the following output contacts: relay status alarm (relay fail). The voltage polarized relay has a directional polarization adjustment to match the impedance angle of the protected line to the characteristic angle of the relay. 1-2 BE1-67N General Information 9190700990 Rev G . This is the angle about which the directional angle is centered.

Operation of measuring circuits and output circuits are inhibited (less than 0. TARGETS One target is included for each tripping function as specified by style number. POWER SUPPLY OPTIONS Various power supply options are available to allow the BE1-67N relay to be used with standard supply voltages. POWER-UP DELAY A power-up delay timer is initiated upon application of control power to the relay to prevent undesired contact transitions when sensing signals are present. or dual polarized 60 Hz sensing with a range of 0.

Configurable auxiliary outputs permit use of the BE1-67N relay in various carrier schemes. normally closed. Targets are operated either by the internal signal initiating tripping (internally operated) or by a minimum of 200 mAdc flowing through the series circuit consisting of the target coil and output relay contacts (current operated). An auxiliary contact can be configured (via internal switches) to operate in parallel with any combination of tripping outputs. PUSH-TO-ENERGIZE OUTPUTS A push-to-energize pushbutton is included for each tripping output contact.
